It's funny how Christie is portrayed as a centrist or uniter solely for the fact that he had his hand out when it came to FEMA money.

It's funny because the rest of that farking group of mouthbreathers in the Republican Party might actually try to poop in the hand of FEMA. Literally.

Of course he's being compared to Reagan. Christie also negotiated with terrorists.

Bullshiat. Christie is twice the man Reagan was.

Ronald Reagan walks over rubble in a South Bronx lot in August 1980.

The President then told an aid, "Just build a big fence around this whole lot and we'll dump all the retard kids in here. Throw in a couple of Cabbage Patch dolls and some colored paper and they'll be fine."

Typical example of Republican empathy.

-supports gay marriage if they have a gay daughter
-against torture, if they have been tortured
-supports FEMA as long as they are the ones hit by a disaster
-supports immigration reform if they are the children of immigrants

Cheney, McCain, Christie and Rubio.  Real empathy is something only a Liberal is capable of.

The other day when we were talking about the POWs we spoke of self-discipline and how it saved their lives. There is an inner man within all of us we have to call on once in a while. Having the guts to do the nasty little boring tasks, sticking to them when we'd rather goof off, decides whether that inner man has enough muscle to be of any help when we need him.

 - Reagan

First off it's none of your business. I don't ask you where you send your kids to school. Don't bother me about where I send mine.

Doesn't matter if they do hate him.  If he remains the front runner, they will come out in droves to vote for him.  His campaign logo could be a pic of him smoking crack wearing a cloak embossed with the emblem of Satan with a hooker under each arm while stomping Jesus' head into a pile of shiat, and they would still vote for him.  Hell, he could be Mormon and they would still vote for him.  There would be grumbling about how "he's not our guy but we still need to support him" and so on.  But the "R" lever will still be yanked at the booth no matter what.

And if the field is as weak as it was the last time, they'll suck it up and rally.  They pretended Romney's past, personality, and religion didn't exist.  I'm sure they're capable of doing that again.

Reagan was a shiatbag. NPR lets him off the hook far too easily for the "he was something of a dead-ender when it came to supporting apartheid South Africa" shiat. Reagan was shiat.

Goes to place near death of civil rights activists and petitions for "state's rights?" That is a shiatbag. That is Reagan and the world is a better place without him in it.

Christie is going nowhere nationally. He has little to no self control, he will embarrass himself almost instantly, make some crazy farking swing to the right to try and appease the absolutely insane base of his party and will be unable to recover. Let him try, I'll laugh.

When was the last time the Republican South voted for a Yankee (Civil-war fighting state) American for anything?

Nixon and Reagan were Californians, Ford never won an election. I'm going to say never, because these people were voting Democratic until 1968.

Maybe this is the year, but I doubt it. Southerners don't vote for Yankees.
 
2013-11-13 09:40:49 AM
Sooooo, Christie is senile, negotiates with terrorists, and runs up huge deficits?

Yeah, I wouldn't vote for him either.

Hence why Christie would get the nomination by winning northern and western primaries while losing to Rubio, Cruz, Paul, or whatever other dingbats he's up against in the south, and then in the general the southern states would do like they did with Romney, hold their noses and vote for him because while they don't like yankees, they sure as hell ain't votin' for no dimmycrat.  'specially if'n the dimmycrat's a yankee too.

"Minority outreach" about knocked me out of my chair. His education cuts were deemed to have a disproportionate effect on poor (which in NJ means black) communities and Christie fought it all the way to the state supreme court where he lost and had to increase funding then touted that increase in the last election. The guy is one contradiction after another.

So the GOP front runner is an actor who doesn't know anything about politics and will flat out lie to the American public to generate fear in order to drive voters to select him then when elected will begin a stupid "War on Drugs," pass the largest peacetime tax increase, fund social security and use the military however he likes ignoring Congress?

Oh wait, we're going with the revisionist history.

Which is why sitting out on election day is essentially voting for the worst since people described above will vote for the worst no matter what.

You aren't just voting for who you agree with the most; you are also voting against what you disagree with the most.
